Jumbo counts seven new awards for its Dessineo arts and crafts range

Jumbo’s popular educational arts and crafts collection, Dessineo has been met with a sweeping award success for the second year running. 

The range has picked up a new collection of accolades following the launch of the Learn to Paint (Artist Easel, Stencils and Numbers) products. The educational learning toys have received seven wins across industry recognised awards. 

On top of that, the line has also received recommendations from a leading independent expert on play and child development.

The award success includes several popular and influential consumer awards, from the Right Start Awards, Loved by Parents, Made for Mums and Practical Pre-School. 

Categories span Best Art or Creative Toy, Best Activity Toy, Hands on: Arts & Crafts and Creative Play. The Dessineo range has also been well received by parent testers across the UK. The Dessineo Learn to Paint products have received the ‘recommended’ status from Fundamentally Children and are now featured in the renowned Good Toy Guide.

The Dessineo Painting Easel, Paint with Stencils and Paint by Numbers products have been described as ‘perfect for helping children to build a painting in easy steps.’ With them, children can create and paint many different pictures using the provided templates, paint colours, paint brush, roller brush, artist pallet and sheets of paper with picture frames printed on them.

“We’re delighted to see the same level of success for the Learn to Paint range as we saw last year for the initial Learn to Draw Dessineo item,” said Steven Russell, marketing manager at Jumbo Games. 

“Allowing children to express their creativity in a fun and educational way is great and what we’ve seen parents really engage in. It’s great to see this backed up through the accreditation and recognition it has received in this year’s award wins!”
